Re: Unknown Gun
wiscozac Welcome to the forums
to be honest we'll need way more info than that to help in any real way
do you have any photos that show what your talking about?
are there any other markings or names on the weapon ?
its rare to find a rifle thats only good to throw away , collectors can use some parts so even a heap of junk maybe worth $50 -100 or $20 it depends
but until we know what the weapon is its very hard to say
lots of different rifles marked 1849 sharps for one the austrian and later german garibaldi , M/1849
